Scholarly Activities


Selected as one of the first six Legacy Project recipients

I was identified from within the Osteopathic Profession, by the A.T.S.U. Museum of Osteopathic Medicine, the A.T.Still Research Institute and the Cranial Academy.

I spent 4 days in Kirksville being interviewed, participated in a panel discussion, was videoed treating patients while explaining my management strategy.


Made a presentation to the AOA Bureau of Research discussing the innovative research I was doing with Tensegrity Physical Therapy in Eugene Oregon. We demonstrated immediate statistical and fractal significant change post sequenced OMT utilizing a sophisticated treadmill.


Received the William B. & Eloise W. Sturgill Distinguished Professorship Award 

University of Pikeville 

“In recognition of the love, spirit and commitment you have shown to the University of  Pikeville and for advancing education in Eastern Kentucky"

Oregon Osteopathic Association Convention

I conducted a two - day cranial course



I have developed a unique manipulative approach to cranial care. The Cranial Academy, invited me to teach a 3 day course for their membership. The course was well received according to the course evaluations.


During the American Academy of Osteopathy Convocation, I was asked to make three contributions:

During the first presentation I discussed the unique research I am conducting with associates in Eugene, OR.  Many attending got really excited about our unique approach and data demonstrating immediate Ground Reactive Force changes once sequenced OMT was utilized.

During the second presentation I discussed a Complex Adaptive Systems explanation for understanding our research data.

My 3 day presentation was a workshop discussing and demonstrating a unique Gait diagnosis and treatment approach I have developed and was utilized during our Osteopathic research treatment sessions.  This was well received and the Academy invited me to develop a 3 day course on my unique gait approach.  The course will be presented in July 2016.



The American Academy of Osteopathy invited me to repeat the 3 day Cranial course I did in February for the Cranial Academy; the course evaluations were very positive.


Washington, D.C.

I was one of 2 American Osteopathic Physicians invited to present at the BIG VII Conference; 

BioTensegrity Interest Group. I was invited to present my Ground Reactive Force research changes following my AGR/Sequenced OMT. I was also invited to participate in a panel discussion with some of the biggest international names in Fascia Research and treatment. I was also invited to conduct a workshop demonstrating my unique Gait diagnosis and treatment approach. My presentations were very positively received.


I was invited to be the 3 - day presenter for the annual Ohio CORE

(Committee on Osteopathic Research and Education) OPP seminar.

This was a 2 day faculty development seminar.

I completed a chapter for a German Textbook. 

The German edition is in print, the English edition was released January 22, 2018.

The book is being organized by a group of excellent German MD’s who are very skilled and effective manual  practitioners based on Osteopathic Principles. They are using my unique OPP approach of starting your OMT at the Key Lesion/Area of Greatest Restriction and sequencing as a major focus of the book which will be comparable to the Foundation of Osteopathic Medicine published by the AOA.
